Why is this a “Giving Walk”? Because it’s the club’s 40th birthday – and we’re giving the presents! We will be walking through the downtown area during the time of the College World Series. Bring one or more small wrapped gifts to hand out. Some ideas are sample or personal sizes of suntan lotion, baseball related items, hand lotion or any other small item you think people would be happy to receive. We will have lots of extras if you don’t have one to bring. 

Sunday, July 28th, 2:05 p.m. – Omaha Storm Chasers Outing

Only three tickets are left for the Sunday, July 28th 2:05 p.m. Omaha Storm Chasers baseball game against the San Antonio Missions!  We’re reserving VIP Club Seats behind home plate – in the shade! – with in-seat wait service and access to the VIP Club itself.  Cost is $11 for club members and $16 for non-club members.  

Email us right away at netrailblazers@gmail.com to see if those tickets are still available!

The intrepid Trailblazers will traverse the trails to Mahoney State Park on Saturday, August 10th for a 5 p.m. showing of the melodrama “The Rose of Dismal Flats”.  Tickets for the show are just $7.  Mahoney State Park charges $6 per carload for a daily pass ($8 for non-Nebraska residents), so we’ll meet at Cheri O’s in Ashland for ice cream at 3 p.m. before the show and then carpool to the theater. Doors open at 4:30; seating is general admission.  The theater sells popcorn, which you can either eat or throw at the actors.

Bellevue Walk – this coming Saturday, May 11th

Our next event will offer both a 5k and a 10k walk starting from the Sarpy County Museum at 2402 Clay Street in Bellevue, Nebraska. Register any time between 9 a.m. and noon and walk at your own pace. Please be sure to be back by 3 p.m. We’ll have a Group Walk starting at 9:30, for those of you who like a little more social time while walking.
Children in strollers are free. Dogs on leashes are free. For everyone else: Fun Walkers pay $2, and Credit Walkers (book stampers) pay $3.

A heads up on parking: parking at the Sarpy County Museum itself is very limited. Our workers setting up and taking down equipment will probably take up most of the parking. Consider parking at St. Mary’s Church, just a block and half away. See the map, below.

More parking is available just a block and a half away!

Wildlife alert! Be on the lookout for this ferocious beast:
